Prior to the workshop:

Investigating topographic data

  • Download the Medical Emergency Information Form (Acrobat (PDF) 5kB Jan13 04), complete it, and bring it with you to the workshop in a sealed envelope. We will open the envelope and read the form only in the case of a medical emergency during the workshop.

Instructions for Speakers

After the workshop your presentation file will be posted on the workshop website. Because this file will be freely accessible, you'll want to make sure that you are not displaying proprietary data or images. It's good practice to include an image credit on your images and to use copyright-free imagery. 

If you are giving a presentation at the workshop, please upload your presentation file. This will give you an on-site backup copy and will allow us to post your presentation on the website. You should still plan on bringing a copy of your file with you. You will have the option of giving your presentation from your own computer or you may use one of our laptops (both PCs and Macs will be available). You may also upload other files related to the workshop.
